Tuesday Tools: Thunderclap
Thunderclap is a crowdsource for social media. When you create a Thunderclap and reach your goal of 100, 250 or 500 people, Thunderclap sends out the same tweet from all those participants at the same time. Same tweet, all at the same time.
It's like a huge wave of social media tsunami going everywhere--an explosion of your message across the internetwebs! I honestly think the website tells it better than me so I'm going to share it...
If a tweet falls in the forest... Social media is an easy way to say something, but it’s a difficult way to be heard. Thunderclap is the first-ever crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. By boosting the signal at the same time, Thunderclap helps a single person create action and change like never before.
You don't need a huge following for a successful Thunderclap. A user with 200 Facebook friends could amplify her message better than someone with 3,000 friends. It all depends on your cause's voice and shareability—and how much your friends are engaged. Thunderclap has already reached millions of people.

The tipping point The beauty of Thunderclap is that it sets the goalposts: one message, one number, one date. It's a common threshold you and your supporters work toward together. It's a tangible way to measure awareness.
So, it's something like this for social media...
Actually, I think this is a better explanation...
ACTION ITEM: Go to Thunderclap and support a message or create your own!
